I am writing to say a big ‘thank you’ to Bernard for his professional opinion with regard to a lease on a tea shop my daughter voiced an interest in. I would like Bernard to be acknowledged at 4N for the assistance he has given to my daughter.
Whilst at one of the Uckfield 4N meetings I remember Bernard, during a presentation, talked about the ‘pitfalls’ with regard to commercial leases. He suggested it more prudent to let a Commercial Chartered Surveyor read through a lease prior to signing, as the surveyor had the experience to ‘decipher’ the contents therein for the benefit of the lessee.
I contacted Bernard and asked if he would mind reviewing the lease my daughter had been offered and what his opinion of entering into the arrangement would be. Bernard acted very promptly and based on his ‘comprehensive’ opinion, my daughter did not proceed.
When originally contacted Bernard said he would only charge for his work, (and the fee would be agreed) if the lease required further clarification etc.. Bernard did not charge a fee in this instance and saved my daughter a lot of money!
I would like to say that I can highly recommend Bernard to anyone who may be considering going into business where a lease is required.
